Growing Bolder


David Hackett’s life reads like a Hollywood script. A surfer turned skateboarding pioneer and icon, he was a world champion at 15. He was 20 when his brother murdered their mother in the kitchen of their family home. Hackett spent the next 20 years as a drug addict and alcoholic and one of his sports top professional riders.

After getting sober, he was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer and cured himself with lifestyle modification. Happily married and totally drug and alcohol free, “Hackman” became a highly sought after addiction recovery guru, motivational speaker, entrepreneur, award-winning graphic and product designer, brand ambassador, and fine artist.

In this exclusive Growing Bolder mini-doc, we roll with a guy who lives on the edge and in the moment, a stereotype smashing world class athlete and master of the art of the comeback.

94-year-old Harriette Thompson continues to smash stereotypes, just by Growing Bolder! One of our favorite radio guests, Harriette recently became the oldest woman to ever finish a half marathon.
In an interview with a journalist after the race, Harriette said: “I never was 94 before, so I had no idea whether I’d be able to do it or not. But it really wasn’t as hard as I thought it was gonna be. It’s not like doing a marathon.” (Harriette was already the world's oldest marathoner, so she'd know!)

Harriette broke a half marathon record previously held by Gladys Burrill, whom we've also interviewed on Growing Bolder Radio
